Just East of Palm Springs along I-10 in California is Joshua Tree National Park.  Established as a park in 1994 it is home to it’s namesake, the Joshua Tree.

The Joshua Tree looks like a Yucca Tree, but it actually part of the Agave family.

The park itself is a big loop that takes one through hiking trails, multiple camping sites, and picnic areas.

It makes for a scenic drive through boulders, wildflowers, and lots of Joshua trees… making it a fabulous drive through this desert oasis.
